By Danielle Datre, Public Relations & Social Media Intern

We all want to be sure our Dads have the best possible day on Father’s Day. If you’re running short on time and still trying to plan a “Dadtastic” day, we’re here to help! For dads with a sweet tooth, we’ve created this Heath Iced Coffee Pancake recipe and paired it with Dark Roast Candied Bacon that’ll show Dad just how special he is. This delectable combo of two breakfast favorites will have Dad’s mouth watering in no time. See below for the full recipe.


Heath Iced Coffee Pancakes




  • 2 Cups of your favorite pancake mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Heath iced coffee


1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

3. Drop about a 1/2 cup of batter into the hot pan and cook until the edges look dry, about 30 seconds. Turn; and cook until the other side is golden brown.

4. Serve with dark roast candied bacon and enjoy!



Dark Roast Candied Bacon




  • 1 lb. thick cut bacon
  • 1 Medium DD Dark Roast Coffee
  • 2 Cups brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Place bacon on a sheet pan and bake for 12 minutes until the bacon is cooked but not crispy, and then drain the fat from the pan.

3. In a small sauce pan, combine the Dark Roast Coffee and brown sugar and reduce by half or until thick and syrupy.

4. Take the bacon off the sheet pan, piece by piece, dunking it in the brown sugar and coffee mixture to coat, then place it back on the sheet pan.

5. Place glazed bacon back in the oven and bake for 8 more minutes or until the bacon looks crisp.

6. Remove pan from the oven and using tongs remove the bacon from the sheet pan immediately placing the bacon on parchment paper to cool.
